Phew! We arrived on Friday, everyone. And just one warning: I’m out on Monday, although newsletter subscribers will receive the email of your offer as usual. (You subscribe to the Cheapskate newsletter, right? If not, there is a registration box right at the bottom of this post!)
Today I couldn’t decide just one or two offers to share, so I give you five!
To update: The Qi loading platform seems to have expired, but the other offers are still valid!
Many modern true wireless headphones come inside a charging case that can be recharged wirelessly, simply by placing it on a Qi charging platform. The HolyHigh EA2 wireless headphones come in a case that is, in itself, a Qi charging platform. It’s true: turn it over and place your phone on it for easy wireless charging on the go.
So, in a way, it looks like you’re buying a portable Qi power bank that simply has headphones inside. And that power bank is recharged through USB-C and also has a USB Type-A output. If you use it only to keep the headphones on, the 5,000 mAh battery can provide you with 240 hours of total play time, according to HolyHigh.
The headphones themselves: pipe design, noise-insulated, sweat-resistant and waterproof headphones with IPX5 rating. I am listening to you right now; The sound quality is decent given the price, perhaps a bit flat in general, lacking details but definitely good enough for the gym. As with all headphones of this type, obtaining a good internal seal is the key.
Oh, and speaking of price: only $ 33.49 when you cut the coupon for $ 5 off the page and then apply the promotion code TYDZD2RD in box That’s less than I would pay for countless headphones that don’t have a super versatile charging case.
In recent years, SimpliSafe has become synonymous with DIY home security. He is also known for offering one of the most affordable monitored security systems he can get.
For a limited time, it is even more affordable: this five-piece kit, originally $ 250, has never been priced so low. It includes the base station (with siren), a keyboard, a motion sensor, an input sensor and a key ring. You also get a garden sign and window decals, and you can expand the system with more sensors, a panic button, cameras, etc.
Monitoring is optional. Prices start at 50 cents per day.
Will Apple eliminate the Lightning port someday? Maybe, but not yet. Until then, you may want to stock up on cables. This package of four includes two feet of 3 feet and two feet of 6 feet, I think the first is good for car use, where you do not want the cable to clutter in place.
These cables are not only MFi certified, but also twisted and covered by a lifetime warranty. What’s not to like?
To obtain this price, apply the promotion code XQVDLEJW in box
I am increasingly in love with LED light strips, either as partial lighting behind your TV or simply to improve your decoration. Govee’s 16.4-foot foot is ridiculously affordable, going down to $ 14.53 when he cuts the coupon for 5% off the page.
The strip is completely controlled by remote control. (Some support Wi-Fi, just for your information, which allows application and voice controls, but not this one.) With it you can adjust the brightness and color, set custom scenes, etc. Definitely worth checking out if you haven’t tried this kind of “mood” lighting yet.
This is the problem with many Qi charging pads: they don’t come with wall sockets. Sure, you can use an extra one you have out there, but unless it’s a QuickCharge (QC) plug, you won’t get a quick charge of the pad.
That’s one of the reasons why I really like this Seenda pad: it has a built-in AC plug. In addition, it has a pair of USB Type A ports right next to it, so you can use it to charge other devices while you are charging your phone. Practical!
The platform typically sells for $ 20, which is decent, but the price drops to $ 14 with the promotion code 30SEENDA57. To update: This code only works with the seller ZYH Shop.
Have a great weekend, cheeps, and see you Tuesday!
